Inpulse Bikes.... Now in the UK.

inpulse 26

Scott Wilson, via his 54sport outlet, is now the UK distributor for the Inpulse range.
Here Scott tells us how it all came about.....

"I’ve known Aurelien and Cedric for a a few years through the UCI scene and had been keeping an eye on the inpulse since it came about in 09. I always liked the look of it and knew if The font bro’s were designing it and developing it, it was going to be good.
Over the winter I started to get the itch for a new bike, and i needed something to shake up my riding and re-motivate me for the coming year... I remembered the Inpulse, saw the 2011 version had a quick chat to cedric and that was it sorted!

I’ve had a few days trying the bike now and am very impressed by it. The light weight is very noticeable (around 8.5kg as standard) Its very fast to react, side hops, wheel swaps happen so fast and easy now! Its got a lot of control when on the rear wheel too which makes it a pleasure to ride!
54Sport really began in the winter. I have been looking into starting a trials or clothing shop for a little while and when i was speaking to cedric he mentioned he was looking for a UK importer, I couldn't see a reason why I shouldn't try it and I just went for it! I was already talking to one of my great sponsors, green-oil.net, about stocking some of their products so it seemed like a logical step to take.
54 Sport are the Official UK importer for Inpulse bikes. We currently have the R26, R20 full build bikes in, ( very nice!) and the R26 frame, and will soon be getting supplies of various Inpulse parts. I also stock green-oil and Phatworks products. We dont have any team riders at the moment, but will be looking very soon..........
